The Wheeling Vintage Raceboat Regatta!

The 7th Annual Wheeling Vintage Raceboat Regatta!

The 2014 Regatta will celebrate our 9th year and build on our past success from previous years. Be sure to watch our website for the latest announcements. As always, the Regatta features FREE ADMISSION for all public events.

Come to the Regatta and see the beautiful wooden hydroplanes and raceboats up close. Watch them run on the Ohio River at speeds between 60 and 140 mph! Learn about how these boats were built in their “glory days” from the 1920’s to the mid 1980’s. Find out who the famous boat builders were and the differences among them. Learn about the aerodynamics, engineering and physics of boat racing. Transport yourself back to the 1960’s and 1970’s, when one of the most famous sites in power boat racing, New Martinsville, WV, was in its heyday. Do you know what sport boasts the most world records set in West Virginia? That would be inboard power boat racing, and those records were set in New Martinsville!

SeaQuest Kids will return for a ninth year in 2014. This incredible program which teaches boating safety and boat-building to children ages 3 to 18 was very popular last year and over 100 children of all ability levels participated. SeaQuest Kids is again offered as a free program to all children. Want to learn more about SeaQuest Kids?.
